My work started with working at a care home with dementia sufferers.
I was affected by the way the people seemed to drain away as the disease progressed.
I decided to produce faces in glass as a series, showing how the colour disappeared from the lives and was replaced by a black void
I was at the point of casting the pieces when we were locked out. I hope that I will be able to make the pieces when life returns to normal.
I have not found the course easy! It has challenged me to push my ideas away from the obvious. I enjoyed visits to Manchester and a conference in London with Max Stewart.
Covid has affected me profoundly, as my old people have died, some with the virus.
I hope to go back to caring as I find the work very rewarding.
I am sure I will continue to produce my own work.
